Designer by day…
I think I have been designing since the day I was able to pick up crayons, scissors, and construction paper.
Fast forward to college—where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Iowa State University—and you end up with over 25 years of experience providing creative work for corporate clients, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and individuals seeking to get the most out of their communication initiatives. My portfolio includes a broad range of work on newsletters, brochures, annual reports, posters, magazines, technical illustrations, reports, event promotional materials, advertising, logo design, photoediting, and digital media. My passion for design is evident in everything I create.
…secret agent and superhero by night.
OK. I’ll admit, that’s a fib. My evenings aren’t spent on anything quite so dangerous. Although, since I’m accident prone, frequently handling an X-acto knife and rotary cutter could be considered living on the edge.
I live and work in Story City, Iowa, with my husband and youngest of two sons. My oldest; however, is close by and has just gifted us with our first grandchild! I choose to spend my free-time on diverse interests—quilting, sewing, cross-stitching, stained glass, gardening, cooking/baking…the list goes on and on.
